About the owner: My name is Denita Lee and my husband's name is Randy. We are both educators. I retired in 2007 after teaching 32 years and Randy has taught for 33 years and he is currently the principal at Addison Elementary School. Randy also is chairman of our deacons at First Baptist Church Addison and I teach 5th & 6th grad Sunday School. We love to travel, but most of all we enjoy spending time with our family & our church family.
Why the Owner Chose Houston: Randy and I have always enjoyed and lived in this area. In 2008, we built our log home in Emerald Valley Estates, which is on Smith Lake. This is a very peaceful, beautiful area which has much to offer. Our home is about a 10 minute drive to our cabin.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We have year-around water with great fishing, boating, and swimming, or you might simply want to relax while enjoying the breath taking view. Our cabin is also located next to beautiful Bankhead National Forest with many fun activities such as canoeing, hiking, horseback riding, and exploring the many wonders of the forest.
